Trace was picked up off the floor of the guildmaster’s office by one of the guild's enforcers, an orc, and shoved roughly back on to the wooden chair. Wiping his split lip, the young half-elf contemptuously spat a glob of blood at the orc. This earned the 15-year-old another blow to the face, almost knocking him back off the chair. The coarse skin of the orc's fist scraped across his cheek leaving behind a series of rough scratches and the force of the punch sent a tooth clattering across the floor. Only the grip of the thug's partner kept him in the seat. Pulling his fist back for another blow, he was stopped by the dark-skinned human sitting behind the desk. “That's enough,” Dorga ordered, “You’re getting blood all over my floor.” Growling, the orc cuffed Trace across the...

I'm here today to let you all know of an upcoming Gameday. G3 @ UF will be hosting a Gameday on UF Campus September 20th. Although the DMG2 will have already come out, this is a continuation of the WWGD (World Wide Gameday) from September 19th. Seats may be reserved for free at the G3 @ UF Warhorn Website.
Although Wizards has yet to send me anything more than advertising materials, I expect there to be free swag* given away to Players and DM.
I would also like to remind all the members of this group of 2 important websites for G3:
G3 @ UF
Gainesville Gaming Group Forums
Please take advantage of these two sites as well as our new Wizards of the Coast Group, which I thank Vito for creating.

People keep asking for a D&D video game as if there haven't been tons of them already. Unfortunately, most of them suck. My plea is simple: don't make a new D&D game unless it's going to be frikkin' awesome.
By "awesome", I mean at least close to groundbreaking.
Not this: (not the first D&D RTS, by btw)
The differences between these games should be evident. The "A" side games are fulfilling experiences, with grand stories, great soundtracks, and endearing gameplay. "B" side? Watered down versions of adventures, that are sometimes degraded into little more than button-mashing bore-fests. Most of the time, they're just riding the success wave of other developers that pushed the general sway of the market...

4th Edition Dark Sun...Holy crap that is cool. Never got a chance to play it during 2nd Edition but I have heard great things about the setting itself.
Psionics..well, they have always pretty much sucked because the rules didn't mesh well with the rest of the game. As far as I see it, 4th Edition will change that easily as it is just another "source". About freaking time.
So...what would happen if say, the heroes failed? What if the world changed without their control and they went from Point's of Light to...Dark Sun. >:]
Just an option I am holding up my sleeve. Obviously I still have to wait for the Setting to come out but by the time it does...2010 something, the players should be about...level 10-15? I'm not sure. But it should be freaking sweet.
What do you guys think?...

I was happily surprised to see that Wizard's of the Coast decided to make some material free for people who are interested in Dungeons & Dragons. They call it a "Test Drive" and it's a bit like the 14 day trials that online games have a lot of times. What you get to download for free is 'Keep on the Shadowkeep' adventure, Quick Start Rules, 'Kyhber's Harvest' adventure, and a limited Character Builder.
With all this free material, people who are curious about D&D can really get a decent idea of a normal game. This is a great idea and to me 'Keep on the Shadowfell' will become a classic, so it's a great place to start.
Hopefully this Test Drive will really draw a few people in, even 3.5 players who are just curious to see what 4th edition is like.
